At Sentara, the safety of our patients, visitors, physicians and staff are of utmost concern to us. As situations arise that impact the safety of - or access to - our facilities, we are committed to keeping everyone informed and up-to-date.

The roof fire at 301 Riverview Avenue in Norfolk (last night/Apr. 9th) affected five of Sentara's practices, and as a result, all sites will be closed for patient appointments for at least the next few days. Impacted sites include:

  • Executive Evaluation Center
  • Dedicated Care Center
  • Sentara Family Medicine Physicians
  • Sentara Internal Medicine Physicians
  • Fort Norfolk Diagnostic Center

We are still early in the process of working with inspectors and City officials to assess the damage and determine when we will be able to safely regain access to the building. While we await a final report on the length of time our building will be inaccessible, we are also in the process of identifying alternative sites of care with a goal to reestablish our ability to care for patients - wherever that may be - as soon as possible.

A team is meeting daily and will be coordinating regular updates for patients and the community at large here on Sentara.com. Patients with scheduled appointments will be contacted.

If care is needed immediately, there are also two Sentara Urgent Care locations nearby. A full listing is also available at Sentara.com/urgentcare.
